The legendary Corey Taylor. There is no explaining needed. You should ALL know who he is. If you don’t shame on you!!!
Corey Taylor and I backstage at the Starland
Corey is best known as the lead vocalist and lyricist of Slipknot and Stone Sour. Corey Taylor is a founding member of Stone Sour, and has released five studio albums with that band. Taylor joined Slipknot in 1997 to replace their original singer.
I have provided two interviews with Corey one with video and one with just audio (no editing).
Check it out below:
It was such an honor to meet this powerhouse metal rocker. Ivan Moody is an amazing artist. He is very genuine but definitely tears it up on the stage. He is so animated during his performances, that his adrenaline rush makes you want to just get up and moshhhhh!

All metal heads should definitely know who he is and if your not a metal head then you need your head examined 😉
I ran into Ivan again in 2012 and he still recognized me even with my darker hair which he added that he liked it better than the blonde. Even all sweater and wet he still posed backstage for a photo. Zoltan was well, we were talking karate and marshal arts with my husband and I in the locker room. Hahaha, interesting setting. Love you guys, keep on rockin!!!!! \m/ To see more photos click here

Wes Scantlin is a songwriter, lead singer, guitarist and the only remaining founding member. Wes was very down to earth and it just so happens that during this time, I was featured on the Cover of Steppin’ Out Magazine and gave Wes a signed copy. He is such a nice guy, he had me laughing the whole interview. Unfortunantly the video footage from our awesome interview was lost. Note to everyone, make sure interns know how to videotape.
Me picking up Wes
Here’s a photo of me being silly. I had to pick him up to prove how strong I was or how puny he is hahaha. Wes you ROCK!!!
Three Days Grace is another one of my favorite bands. Their all time single “I Hate Everything About You”, had me hooked. I had the opportunity to interview Brad Walst and Neil Sanderson. Brad Walst is the bassist, backing vocalist, and co-founder of the Canadian rock band Three Days Grace. Walst’s brother, Matt, is the lead vocalist of alternative rock band My Darkest Days. Neil Sanderson is the drummer, backing vocalist, and co-founder of the this Canadian Band. As many of you have heard this sad news early this year, Three Days Grace announced that lead singer Adam Gontier was resigning from the band because of a “non-life threatening” health issue.

Adam Gontier has been replaced for the duration of the tour by My Darkest Days singer Matt Walst, brother of bassist Brad Walst. We wish Adam the very best. Sending prayers!!!
Josh Todd is an American musician and actor, best known as the lead singer of the rock band Buckcherry. I had the opportunity to interview this powerhouse. Of course I had to ask him about his song “Crazy B*&%#” which happens to be about our all time favorite Ms. Paris Hilton.
I was very fascinated with his tattoos, I don’t think he missed a spot on his body hahaha. Josh was the very first man that has ever given me makeup; “Smashbox” I may add. This rocker has great taste. Thank you again Josh!!! \m/
Mike Wengren is the drummer for the Heavy Metal band Disturbed. Mike is one of the founding members of this band, which formed in 1996. He is well known for his hard hitting bass drum techniques that have become a staple of Disturbed’s music.
David Draiman and Mike Wengren
I had the opportunity to interview this rockstar at the MAAW Tour at Monmouth University and ran into him again backstage at the PNC Bank Art Center. Disturbed was my very first rockstar interview and they are one of the nicest metal heads in this business.
